RE: He does Duathlon too...

Well, Lance may have been wrong - it is about the bike. Kip at age 45 blew - and I mean blew - away the field on the bike leg of this duathlon in 2008 averaging 25 mph. Maybe the tri guy could elaborate on the conditions and the topography of the course as 25 mph on a flat course is not uncommon. But no one else came close. Biked over 2 mph faster than the overall winner, 7 minutes on the next guy in his AG who led him on the run. Maybe he's a great biker, but the gap seems very large to be outbiking younger guys.

This just keeps getting more amazing. Could he have cut a bike course too???!!! WOW.

I know cycling and can say unequivocally Dr Kip Litton did NOT ave 25 mph for the bike leg. He isn't capable of that for more than very short stretches and certainly not 2+ mph faster than long-time friend Dave Furey, 3rd overall. Dave could beat Kip nine ways to Sunday in a straight dual w/Kip in running, cycling or duathlons. I know Gary Ruddy can ride too - no way Kip beats those two. I'd be pleased to see how Kip could hang w/the Wed nite fellas out of Lennon.
